Hi I'm Gabo Martinez

I'm Puerto Rican. I'm a mama's boy. I'm a missionary and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Puerto Rico. My family means everything to me! I love playing and watching sports. I have plans of going into sports medicine. It'll be awesome!

Why I am a Mormon

Well I grew up in the church so it was the thing to do with my family. When I was about to turn 14 my parents were called to go on a mission to Guatemala. So I had to leave my comfortable home and my friends and family in Puerto Rico and move to Guatemala. I thought, if my parents have such a strong belief in this that they are willing to move to a different country and serve God and the people there, then I should find out for myself if it's true. To gain a testimony I did what I had been taught since I was a baby and read the Book of Mormon and prayed about it. After a few days of praying the thought came to me 'you already know it's true.' So I kept going to church and doing my best to keep the commandments. It's been such a blessing!! Now I'm on my mission in Vegas and I see ways my life could have turned out had I not chosen to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ and keep God's commandments.

How I live my faith

I live it by doing my best to learn about Christ and follow His example. Currently, I'm a representative of Him and strive to serve God's children and help them to gain faith in Christ and take the necessary steps to gain salvation in the Kingdom of our Heavenly Father. It's the best! I love it!

What is the Book of Mormon?

Gabo Martinez
The Book of Mormon is awesome! It's the word of God given to the people here in the continent of America between the years of 600 BC and 400 AD. It shows God's love towards all of His children. It shares that the Atonement of Christ is available to all those who live the principles and receive the ordinances of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Personally, it helps me to understand how I can return to live with my Heavenly Father. It answers the questions of the soul. As I read, my faith increases and so does my desire to good. Read it, ponder it's message and pray about. You'll come to know like I do that it's inspired of God. You'll see your faith grow. I promise! Show more Show less
